Water Sense labelled toilets include high efficiency toilets with a single flush mechanism as well as dual flush models [which use a higher volume of water for a solid flush and a lower volume for a liquid flush]
High efficiency toilets work effectively in basement settings. Research shows that performance depends upon the quality of the toilet flush design, not the amount of water used per flush or the location of the toilets.
Extensive testing has show that water efficient toilets provide more than enough water to transport waste through your home’s drain pipes to the sewer. If you find that your toilet is frequently plugged, it is more likely a sign that your drain pipes are partially or fully blocked than your toilet is not functioning properly.
New high efficiency toilets are not only practical but stylish as well. You can choose from one piece and two piece models. Baker Plumbing would be happy to guide you through the process selecting a high efficiency toilet. Contact us at 403-279-7554 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
If your home is 50 years or older, there is a good chance that you have some galvanized pipe in your system. These steel pipes were used because they were thought to be resistant to rust due to the zinc coating on the outside of the pipes.
However, they do rust, generally from the inside out, releasing corroded metal and particles into the water supply. These particles wreak havoc on appliances and cause leaks and clogs and even contaminate drinking water.
If your home still has some galvanized pipe there is a good chance that they have outlived their life span. This type of pipe generally lasts about 40 years before it starts to corrode to the point that the pipes start to become clogged with an accumulation of the minerals and rusted pipe particles.
Some signs that you may have a problem are: decreased water pressure, rust colored water, stains on your sinks and tubs.
Baker Plumbing with over 58 years of experience can solve these problems for you. We are available 24/7 at 403-279-7554 or at email@example.com. Give us a call, we will ensure that your home is in good hands.

There are several options for heating your outdoor buildings. The most popular are the unit heater [fan coil] or infrared heaters.
The unit heaters are generally the less expensive choice and can provide adequate heat for large spaces, their downside is that they tend to move a great deal of hot air around, not necessarily the best when dealing with dust or other materials that may be affected by moving air. They can also be noisy as the unit operates.
The infrared heater is a great second option and it provides an effective solution for heating. Working very much like the sun, it sends out waves of heat that are absorbed by the objects that the waves come in contact with. They are very popular in hockey arenas and other commercial spaces. It’s only downside is that the unit must be installed carefully with distance factors considered to prevent any damage to cars or other surfaces that might be subject to overheating.
